The dots are extremely close for every LDS person, its just extremely hard to connect them. She is considered "an old maid" by Mormon standards, so she may be willing to marry you--hoping you will convert someday --but she will constantly be reminded that your marriage is inferior to the "Eternal Families" of sealed Mormons, and she will fear dying and never seeing her loved ones again. This spotty attention from him makes me sure I want to end things sometime. That's a really sad story. Marry a person based on his character, not his religion.
Her Religion is more important than you will ever be Her Religion comes first and deep down, she will come to hate you for not accepting joining her religion. There are a great many beliefs I can't condone but most of them are along the lines of gender stereotyping, and how you apply that to your own life obviously varies by individual. I know a lot of Mormons who were also not raised on fear and guilt and strict gender rolesвbut I was, as were many of my peers. It does not come from common religion or personality or even values; it only comes through mutual self transcendence. I would like to compliment the brave ladies for being the strong spouse and keeping the marriage moving forward. Mormon girls are the best, and you are pretty lucky. There are many catholic families with these three main ethnic groups within it. I still feel enriched by the contrasts, but in the important things, we have largely come together. Thanks for pointing this stuff out.
Masculine attributes attract healthy, beautiful women, no matter where they come from. But from what you said, this girl doesn't sound like she is going to be content to have a marriage for time only. Eventually it turned into a sour argument. I can live on less Our whole family has suffered in the name of patient care. Wonderful memories made for both of us.
This was hard for me because my faith is deeply rooted within me. If kids ever came into the picture though, I wouldn't want to be isolated from them psychologically or banned from walking my daughter down the aisle someday. The greatest gift you can give to support: When they want a break, they will ask you and be ready and rejuvenated after. It sucks but ultimately what Mormonism does to people is it makes them value adherence to church more than their relationships with people. I honoured this request and did not contact her until after her exams finished.
